Living Together

Brody and I have been "roommates" for a year a half... well not so much roommates, as I pay the rent. In our new apartment, we each have our own wing which is a "good thing" as Martha might say. And when there are no dishes in the sink, or clothes on the floor and the toothpaste and toilet paper have not been stolen- life is good.
Actually, it's nice to come home to a friendly face who asks about my day. I still find "teachable" moments. Don't put potato skins in the disposal- it will clog the sink. A wine glass in the disposal once a year will keep the blades sharp. A double Windsor knot is in every way superior. Shined shoes are a good thing. A dinner party with good friends is a great way to spend a Sunday evening.
He teaches me- to not take everything so seriously. To sing more. To buy furniture that doesn't look like it came from my grandmother's house. Somehow he's been granted veto power over the furniture purchases. How the heck did that happen?

The Roommate

Brody has been living with me since March. When he moved in, it was only going to be until July. It's almost Christmas.
The "odd couple" relationship has had it's ups and downs. Brody is 27. He can go out until 2:30 and get to work by 9am. I cannot. It would be fine if our bedrooms were at opposite ends of the apartment. They are not. So I hear him rattling the door, talking on his phone, tossing his boots on the floor. Sometimes I roll over and fall back to sleep. Sometimes I lie in bed and slowly burn. And sometimes I get up, hair wild, kimono flying and screech at him and whatever friends he has brought home for a sleep over.
I know what you're thinking... Brody, the salope. (fr) No, honestly, he and his friends are like puppies: three to the bed. Snoring, passed out, quiet...finally.
But overall, the experience has been awesome. And it has made our relationship stronger. Now if he'd only clean up his room!

Paris again...

So Brody and I went to Paris for Christmas. We were joined by Zack...a good, longtime friend of Brody's (and mine.) Had the best time ever...dancing to all hours at Le Cud.
Meeting cute boys...enjoying the city. In the cab back to the airport, Brody and I were seriously depressed. I love Paris. I want to move there.
Time to make a plan.

Travelling men

In our search for the perfect holiday, Brody and I flew off to Oahu for Thanksgiving. 5 days of fun in the sun...4 nights of staying out WAY too late on vodka and red bull. I generally bagged at 2am...and stumbled back to the Royal Hawaiian while he tormented the locals at the after hours bar.

Good food, good sun, good times. Great shopping. And thus the dilemma: Brody found a great hat from Kate Spade....

and then his favorite shoes from Louis Vuitton.

What's a boy to do? What will Santa bring? Brody, his mom and I are having dinner in NYC on Wednesday to celebrate an early Christmas...and then he and I are off to Paris for New Years! Joyeux Noël everyone!!!!

Three guys...

Recently went to a birthday party for my good friend Jeff Robinson...who, btw, is an amazing artist. If you've been to my house, you've seen the giant red and white striped shirt...which was painted by Jeff. The real red and white shirt coincindentally belonged to another good friend: Fred Nelson- on whom I've had a crush for many years...but he lives in NY. Anyway...Jeff's wife Courtney is a good friend (Mary Poppins for the New Millenium). She's in business with Fred.
Courtney's brother, Tuc, is an actor...and can currently be seen on Desperate Housewives. He can also be seen in this picture. I recently asked him to be on "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?" where he proved to be smarter than a fourth grader, which is a good thing.
Lee, the other man in the photo, posing center, is a good friend of Courtney and Jeff's. Lee is also a good friend of Liz Warner. She is an incredibly talented writer- and is the announcer on my show "Wedlock or Deadlock." I shared a taxi with Lee in NY once...and now, I share a photo.
All good people. And all, very intertwined.

Calling all Nielsen households!

Three more weeks left on the summer test for Wedlock or Deadlock and if you're in NY, Philly, Atlanta, Memphis, Orlando, Tampa or Phoenix, please tune in to check this show out. Go to to check listings. And THANKS!!!

Oh for the love of God!!!

Is it any wonder why we're obsessed with youth? Ridiculous! An easy way to torment Brody is to point out someone like this young man and say that I would give him everything. And yes, I mean everything, Brody's inheritance included!
Of course this guys falls into the Brody rule...some random rule he made up saying I can't date anyone younger than him.
Here's hoping this fellow is 27!

more more more music

Anyone who knows Brody...knows that he is perpetually singing...and has done so since was very small. My favorite picture of him has him walking down the beach in Maui at the age of 10 just happy and singing.
This isn't Brody...but it is fun...and a little gay.


Talk about flashbacks. Cool new song...and video. LOVE IT!!!

OMG- has it been that long?

Brody turned 26...and I turned, gulp, 50. Could that be right? Three trips to NY and two trips to Hawaii. And both of us working like dogs.
Brody had an amazing 'House of Campari' in June.
I shot a test series- and am in edit hell.
New pics coming...but first, ran across this awesome choir from Slovenia. (I know, I know. Leave your comments at the door.) Enjoy.

So we went to Paris for New Years again this year...and by "we" I mean- Brody and me- and Brigid, his mom, my "ex" wife, Jeremy, my ex-lover and Paul, his current husband and Zack, Brody's friend "ex-whatever." And it was this New Year's that I realized that none of these people are exes...they are people who are very much involved in our daily lives. They are the legs of our life table.
This became even more apparent this month, when I was hospitalized and had to undergo surgery on my esophagus.
Brody was there every day. Paul and Jeremy constantly dropped by and called and emailed. Zack sent lovely flowers and a new robe. Brigid called both me and Brody for constant updates and to provide support.
Our families are the ones we create- and I'm blessed to have created an amazing one.
